Lycianthes rantonnetii
'Lynn’s Variegated'

Need a hard-to-kill, drought tolerant, deer resistant shrub with rich blue-purple flowers from Spring to Fall? Dream shrub right here! “Variegated Potato Bush” abounds with handsome 1.5” sweetly scented yellow-eyed saucer blooms in wonderful contrast to the wavy, white edged foliage. EASY and FAST, to a multi-branching 8’ x 6’. Tip prune every so often to promote a dense, tidy shape or it can be easily pruned into a pretty, small patio tree. Side-dress with compost twice annually for lushest appearance. Tolerates CLAY-ISH soil, though best in rich, loamy soil. Drought tolerant once established.
